Bloomie to Wage Nationwide War on Salt
The city’s plan is to get food manufacturers in the United States to agree to gradually start reducing salt content until it reaches a 50 percent cut in 10 years.
“Salt, when it’s high in the diet, increases the blood pressure and high blood pressure is a major factor for heart disease and stroke,” said Dr. Sonia Angell of NYC’s Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Program.
This is just Mayor Bloomberg’s latest health initiative, following on the heels of a smoking ban, a ban on trans fats and forcing restaurants to post the calorie contents.
Salt is a nutrient essential to our diet. But CO2 being an essential element of our atmosphere hasn’t stopped totalitarian moonbats from crusading against it.
The brutal truth is that New Yorkers deserve Bloomberg’s authoritarian edicts, having repeatedly elected him. But the rest of us don’t. If anyone is able to penetrate deeply enough through the dense layers of his ego to get a message to Bloomie, they’re encouraged to remind him that he is most definitely not America’s Mayor.
